Legality of State Payments to Attorneys Representing Veterans

Date of Issuance:

A state veterans agency’s payment of fees exceeding $10 to attorneys for representing veterans under laws administered by the Veterans Administration does not violate federal laws governing the practice of attorneys before the Veterans Administration. The $10 limit and other restrictions on attorney’s fees imposed by federal law do not apply to payments by third parties.
